Default Discs and rear pads for my S8

Discs and pads, front and back, need replacing on my S8. I have bought the front pads (TRW) on MJs recommendation that they are a good fit for the Brembo calipers. The rear calipers are standard Lucas ones IIRC.

Does anyone have recommendations for the discs (front and rear) and rear pads?

TRW rear pads tend to be branded as 'Cotec'. There are loads of options for rear discs as they're the same as the front of an A4 or Passat, but choices are very limited on front discs for the Brembos. I've found Febi are the best of the standard options, and are available front and rear.

Oh, they tend not to be easily available from motor factors since they aren't very popular. I buy them on ebay from either JD Motorsports or Parts in Motion, both of whom are excellent. I'll find the listings / part numbers in a bit.

Parts In Motion:

Febi 44051 front discs 345mm

Febi 18398 rear discs 280mm

JD Motorsport:

TRW GDB1532 front pads

TRW GDB1330 rear pads

PIM sometimes have pads as well, but not when I bought the last set. Both of these sellers are highly recommended for the brands that we like, and are cheaper than pretty much anywhere else.

Oops, both the links for pads are for front ones, so I’ve ordered two front sets - doh!

Are these the right ones for the rear: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153169116...3ABFBMpu7826Jg

Oops sorry! JD Motorsports are pretty good for customer service but I've never tried returning anything. If for some reason they won't take them back let me know and I'll buy them from you

Those are the correct rears. I've fixed the link.
